It looks like the London Bridge Walk footbridge over Duke Street Hill (Tooley Street) will disappear:

This means that the vast pedestrian commute over London Bridge, to and from the station, will now have to cross at street level. Surely, the currently just-about-moving-at-rush-hour London Bridge / Duke Street Hill junction will be gridlocked every day. Or have I missed something?

given that the main station entrance will be between weston and bermondsey streets after south eastern railway house is demolished, yes, get used to walking down tooley street for your evening commute!

I can see that stretch is going to become even more of nightmare to go down on a bike during rush hour as people look for every opportunity to cross between the static motor traffic.

I've seen the plans for the station at London Bridge and have mixed views...
An upgrade is needed but it seems they moved the entry to platforms as far away as possible. The cynic in me says that we will have to walk a lot further - past dozens of new shops - to get there, but surely that wouldn't be the reason?

The news article link is from 2 years ago, am I missing something, has there been more recent development or news on this, was the land eventually sold?

Didn't take long for the new labour council to start selling off then. Get used to it.
